Thumbs up Can you describe a Webmaster's function

The description of a webmaster from Wikipedia is "A webmaster (from web and master, also called a web architect, web developer, site author, website administrator is a person responsible for maintaining one or many websites"

If you are a Webmaster, what functions to you carry out?

Regards

It varies from site to site. They might build the site, maintain it, update, market it, etc... Or do just about anything else pertaining to the site.

The webmaster owns the responsibility of delivering the web site, he will achieve that in many ways and be supported in many ways, a small site may require him to be the designer, developer, author and support, a larger site may give him a bigger team leaving him in a more managerial role.

For most of my sites, I do the lot except for hardware maintenance which is provided by the data centre staff. For some of my customer sites, they do the content and design, I do the development & support.

It will of course vary from site to site as needs (or contracts) dictate.

The concept of a Web master has evolved over time - and the number of roles associated with the title has, too. Most of the responsibilities are tied to the experience of the person in the position.

As Alex pointed out, in a small company, the role may be more expansive; in a bigger company, the role may be more limited when there is a larger team to share the duties.

Regards,
Melanie

Depends on what you are after, as mentioned above the qualifications change from person to person.

Very open question,
What is the site built on?
Does the webmaster know the subject or do they have to source content?
How do you define minimum budget?
